By BILL POWELL
JASPER — Employees at a Jasper business thwarted a scrap metal theft Wednesday, according to police who made an arrest in the case.
The Jasper Police Department reports that employees at Forest Products Inc., 51 30th St., reported observing a man removing scrap iron from the property at 10:15 a.m. The employees confronted the man, later identified as Charles T. Kline, 44, Loogootee, and contacted authorities.
Police say Kline allegedly admitted to stealing iron from the location on two previous occasions. Kline had sold the stolen iron at a local scrap yard for $122.50, police alleged.
Authorities booked Kline into the Dubois County Security Center at 11:55 a.m. on a preliminary misdemeanor count of theft. He posted bond that afternoon.
The 1994 Ford Ranger pickup truck Kline had been driving was towed by a Bob Luegers Motors wrecker.
